the pain and wondering, where is america's outrage? where's america's concern that we're still at war? my question is, mr. speaker, why is the house of representatives still supporting a war that costs $10 billion a month? this money is borrowed primarily from the chinese. all we hear about is this financial cliff, this crisis that's facing america. my question is after 11 years, where's the outrage from congress for our men and women in uniform dying in afghanistan? 2014 is the date that the president has said we will start bringing the troops out. that is 25 more months. why do we have to wait until the end of 2014 to start bringing our troops home? how many more have to die at the hands of the very afghans they're training? october 14 "new york times" editorial titled "time to pack up," has a subtitle that says it best -- "it should not take two more years for the united states to leave afghanistan." mr. speaker, i have a petition on my website, the website is jones.house..gov. i'm asking people around this country to please sign this petition with the name and state, nothing else, who

"hannity" starts right here, right now. new troubles for u.n. ambassador susan rice this as questions surface about her time at the state department when al-qaeda bombed two african embassies in the late '90s, and how the situation parallels what happened prior to the terror attack in benghazi that left four americans dead. yesterday republican senator susan collins met with ambassador rice for 90 minutes, and after the closed-door meeting the senator questioned rice's role at the state department back in 1998 when she served as the assistant secretary of state for african affairs in the clinton administration. watch this. >> those bombings in 1998 resulted in the loss of life of 12 americans as well as many other foreign nationals, and 4,000 people were injured. and what troubles me so much is the benghazi attack in many ways echoed the attacks on those embassies in 1998 when susan rice was head of the african region for our state department. in both cases, the ambassador begged for additional security. the ambassador to kenya sent repeated messages to the state dep
